We all know how "CUTE" Mary is, but only she could find a facility, named for HER! We continue to PRAY for HER!

I think that kitty is praying for Mary, as are we all.

Thanks to my sister who sent me links to auctions to look at, I seem to have a new collection. It's Chinese snuff bottles. They have the small size in common with salts, and they have some similar materials. I don't intend to let this one get out of hand for numbers.

    Good afternoon everyone. WOW JAN, you hit the jackpot. I love that creamy yellow one. The amber square reminds me of fine white wine. A full set of the rope rectangle. You KNOW how that tickles my pickle. Very happy for you.
    Susie P. I am sooooo glad to hear about Mary. I hope she can keep her spirits up to fight. She had her shots and still got very sick. I think we all need to continue to be very careful.
    Nothing new here. I have some new salts I need to take pictures of, but haven't felt like doing it. I'm in a funk cause there were 2 salts I wanted badly on ebay. There were so many problems with my kids I totally forgot about them. So I'm having a fanny kick to myself.
   Stay well. My SALT OF THE DAY. a cut to clear.

Last up, I found a blue rope bottom salt. Here are all the colors and sizes in my collection. Only the green and one pink match in size. The blue is slightly larger; it and the clear have polished sides. I wonder how many molds are out there for this type??

Next is the little Rose salt, an original Al Botson mold that was loaned to Summit and then returned to the Botson heirs. Ed Bowman’s info lists it as being found in several colors, but not this creamy pale yellow. It has the Al Botson mark.

Lynda LaLonde... Many eons ago... when children were cared for by Nannies... their dinners were carried up to the nurseries on trays... I could see the salt and pepper ("trainers") on their meal trays presented in doubles such as our "monkey" or "frog" or "sailor" ... what do you think... This could explain the weirdness of these doubles ???

I am thinking of the devastation of loosing a "fuzzy" pet... Was Mary at home when this happened?? Mary has given her whole life..it's time for her to receive some of the love she's given ... I'm sending heaps and heaps of LOVE and CARE her way ~~~ Take care dear friend... God is Good !!!

  Hi everyone. Too funny Nancy D. I no longer knit for the kids but I do stuff them full of cookies. My Madison joined the open salt F B. I had no idea she was going to do that. I love it.
  Salt of the day. I think I have all the colors in the Anniversary salt.
   Everyone stay well. I had a short note from Mary. I think it was yesterday. She feels weak but by George, she's a live.

   My homework with Hunter today is reading. When I did homework with the girls I found teachers got smart and had kids read stories about, science or history. 2 birds with 1 stone.

   Hi everybody. What's new? Debi, glad you're feeling better? Nothing new here. Hope Mary starts to get better. Jan says it is her sinus infection. If I am not mistaken Mary is in the hospital. So, she really needs our prayers.
   I've been seeing some gorgious Fostoria pieces post on Facebook by Rich Cronwell. I'll come back and correct if it is Cornwell. He collects anything Fostoria. The toothpics are really eye catching as you can really see the pattern of the piece. I wish I had room to start collecting those but .... I don't.
   SALT OF THE DAY- I need to look and see what colors are missing.

  Good afternoon everyone.
  Nancy D, I love little bully dogs.
  Did anyone hear if Mary went to the hospital? I'm worried for her. She really can't afford to be any sicker.
  Thunder boomers and rain here.
  Trying to find a salt of the day here, we did salts with rims on F B. This is not the most pretty but defiantly the most unusual.
   Please my dear friends be safe, wash your hands..... oh Dove has a new hand wash with germ killing anticeptic in it. Should not make your hands raw. Wear your masks and stay far from people as positive. People are dieing here like crazy. I am more scared now than I was in 2020. Love you all and I want to keep you all.

It's easy to mix up Nancy V and Nancy D, and it was Nancy D who remembered the Pussycat English rhyme. I'm something of an expert on nursery rhymes I think. I've always loved them and my mother taught me many of them. I think the four lines are all there is to the one Nancy D wrote out below. The Owl and the Pussycat is quite long, the story of how they ran away to sea "in a beautiful pea green boat." It's a poem by Edward Lear.

Hi everybody. I had to look that nursery rhyme up and that is all I found to it.

I must have lost my mind. My two granddaughters are here and I let them have two close friends stay as well. Lots of fun but man, can these kids eat!! The squealing gets a bit much but that’s girls!!

Good Sunday morning everyone. Nancy, your morning kitty kat has the right idea. So cute. I do not remember the rest, if there was any, to that rhyme. There were so many out there when we were growing up. I will see what I can find out.
Pictures, pictures, pictures. I owe a lot of pictures, here there and everywhere. Probably will for a bit, but catching up will be so much fun!!! Keep smiling even though you know I will be back…. 🤣🤣🤣

I thought we could all use some cute humor this morning.

My grandmother always used to recite the following to me:
Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been? I’ve been to London to visit the Queen. Pussycat, pussycat, what did you there? I frightened a little mouse under the chair.

Anyone else know that rhyme?

My main thing right now is a monstrous sore throat that the antibiotics did not touch. I am weak and just want to sleep a lot. I can't get real sick, I have these two old cats to take care of.

   Good gracious, what a crazy situation Mary. ...., Mary did you get your vaccine?
   The strange part of the covid virus is, it is not the virus that hurts you. It plays on the weakness of your body. So if you have a tendency to get pneumonia, it plays on that weakness. At least that is my understanding. Antibiotics don't kill a virus BUT they can build you up. What I mean is the antibiotic will make sure you are not immune fighting on 2 fronts. Any virus hates an acidic environment. Take Vit C 1,000mg twice daily. There is also a medication out there ..... darn..... the name ???? Monocloidial????? It is being used as a TX for covid. Of course check with your Dr before you do anything. Mary, if you got your shot you most likely will not get covid or if you do, it will be very mild.
   It is so hard not to be scared. It is also true.... the force of positive thinking is a strong good thing. Laugh hard and laugh a lot, another good positive force. We will be doing a lot of praying and talking to the Big Guy.
   Debi, I think I've told you, anything I have ever sent you is for you to do as you choose. I have no problems. My meager participation is for the joy of sharing, for the outstanding function of the remake and it is grand to be a part of something so stupendous. I think it is a nice compliment that Carol got so excited over the page. Lolololololol, I still say you need to publish the remake. I think people would fight to buy it.
   I'm glad to hear Joan's O K. We are living in crazy times.

I spoke with Joan yesterday or the day before. They are safe and the winds did not get to her..
Nancy D I am so glad you have missed the wetness also. I never thought I would admit a cat or dog is not cute, but I gotta tell ya Nancy, even with all that fluff, that ain't a cute kitty....
I was just told a dear friend who has been over here almost every day this week, tested positive for Covid. I have been down with a horrible sinus infection. I get them all the time. My doctor has me on a fast acting antibiotic and I am so much better today. I cannot believe an antibiotic fights Covid. Anyway, am waiting for my other close friend to get tested and then she will come and I will get tested. When I had my breast cancer, I learned that fear and faith could walk the same path. I am on that path again...... It is what it is "already". Worrying and crying is not going to change it. Always asking for prayers, aren't I..........
I have the champleve salts already shown, will look and see what I have left that are different than those. Also, my phone/camera is juicing up right now...

I thought I asked if I could post a picture of a salt from the H/J project so people could see what was being done and what they could benifit from going in and viewing. I was only trying to promote the project and show collectors what a great resource the project is. I am sorry if I have caused you any difficulties. I don't how to do your pdf thing.

Lynda, back on August 4, you asked me about posting the H&J Project on the salt forum. Yesterday I see it on the EAPGS forum (not what you asked permission for) and now there's questions about H&J copyrights. When I post any reference I just link it to the PDF page on my website, not copy the page and make an image of it. I don't remember whose pictures belong to who for credit, so no, I don't want these pages added to their data base. Please just stop. There's enough out there for people to find on their own and I have posted the link to my website countless times on the EAPGS forum.

   Good morning everyone. Hope you are all doing well. I have the Amazon Fire Stick for my T V so I don't see the news. But on facebook I read the Ida hurrican really did damage. Is that the rain that hit you Nancy? It must have been one hell of a storm. My heart aches for the Gulf Coast people that lost their homes.
We have had a lot of rain this summer. More than usual. I can't knock it. Water is important for life.
   I know what you mean about not losing your air conditioning Nancy. That is always my worry when we have storms. People think air conditioning is not necessary for life, but I have trouble breathing without it.
   Susie P, your Champleve are beautiful. Fun too.
   My SALTS FOR THE DAY, I'll join Susie. I think Mary has some elegant and different Champleve pieces.

Here is a new pair for me, just love these holders! One of the salts is cracked, but hopefully I have a replacement

  Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well. Rainy day in Fl. Again. Hunter has a ton of homework. The family was on a short vacation and he has make-up work. Good for my old brain.

Mary, I’m in a similar state, though probably not as severe as you. Still getting by myself with help from an aide who shops & cleans once a week. Two of the neighbors make sure I’m still alive. If I fall again or break something, it will be over for me staying here. In the same home since 1959 and hard to give up.

   Well there's a sexy cat. Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well.
   Athena ended up have 12 puppies. 2 died but the rest are doing very well. She is a bit young to be a mother but Nadia and Morgan are helping her. She keeps pushing a pup to one of the girls. When they pick the puppy up she proceeds to give them a thorough washing.

   Mary, that is another very beautiful salt. How do they get those colors and finish?
   My daughter's Great Dane is giving birth right now as I write you. So far 5 babies. The girls are so excited. I guess baby pups will be my salt for the day.

Morning everyone. Thanks for the encouragement Nancy V and Nancy D thanks for the hug. My pain doc is good and I do believe she is truly trying and will help me. Sooooooo, really good news!!! Albert came home from the vet yesterday.... No goodbye. Little sucker perked up as soon as he realized where he was. Blood sugar level perfect. Vet told me what to look for and until he shows signs, he is mine to hug, fluff and clean up after. Life is good right now. New caregiver today....
I do believe the two salts are glass... I maybe wrong, but to me they are glass. Wonder how to confirm without hurting them??? Have another strangely beautiful one I will go take a picture and post. Should be enough light.
Okay, I be back and until then Happy days all around!!!

Have to figure out some relief soon, cannot deal with the physical pain right now and my heart pain over my fur babies. Oh well, enough of that. I will leave them on my desk for a bit Debi and let you know if and when I wish to part with one. If I do, it will be yours...

Good morning.... I too am in agreement with your puppy dog Nancy D. Soooo freakin cute!! Hope everyone rose to nice weather and a body not complaining with new issues.....
I only have one of your type of beautiful salt Lynda. I split the set with Kent. I have about eight boxes full of my silver rims. That one will be a hard one to purge. But ya gotta do what what don't wanna do most of the time..
I will be back with more blue for you. Thought I would do my typing on my computer and then my picture after with my phone. My blue did appreciate your compliments.
Thank you Don and Deane. Right now I think Albert is doing the best of the three of us. Mackie's discomfort with his nose is getting worse by the day.... I just keep praying to know when to do the right thing. Neither one of them is asking for a good bye...
Well, Lynda, the test for the permanent implant of a pain monitoring unit is on hold. We need to get my right leg under control. I can barely walk and when I do, nine times out of ten it is with tears from the pain. I should hear from her today about the X-rays. I have hired additional help so more days and nights are covered. I am not a happy camper, but what the hay...
I am encouraged by all of you. Seems this group is a bunch of strength. You all just keep going and your example gives me the strength I need. Besides coming here and seeing the pretties is darn good medicine too also...
Okay back with a salt picture..

   Good morning, how is everyone today? 1st day post covid injection, arm is sore. Joints ache. Motrin and Tylenol my best friends, otherwise, fine so far.
   Have you guys ever wondered what happens to a covid dead body? I found out they are double bagged on the floor. The morgue does not open those body bags. All tags are placed on the body bags. Which ever funeral home picks them up, they keep them in the cooler 4-5 days before handling them at all. Most are cremated. The state dictates no handling of the bodies for 2 days but most funeral homes have extended that period. This virus has certainly changed the lives of all humans on earth.
   MY SALT OF THE DAY-I love these type enameled metal rim salts. These are my only set but Jytte has about 5 or 6 different sets.
   Stay well my friends. Oh Nancy D, he sooo cute. Love little French bulldogs. I don't want to "adult" any days!!!!

  It is a crazy world out there. There is so much mis-information that a lot of people don't know what to do and don't trust the vaccine. We know there is concern that the active disease causes organ harm and/or potential problems maybe later in life. We just don't know enough about what is going to happen in the future. And no one trusts our government. I figure.... getting the vaccine is better than getting the disease and dieing. Frustrating.

Scary to think of covid positive people who have no care for others. One of my two regular care givers told me, when I asked, that her live-in boyfriend may or may not have had his shots. Probably means he hasn't. I've asked her to wear a mask whenever she is here. I have a care giver coming in only four hours a day, mostly so they can pick up my meal downstairs and save me the long walk. I think I'll be letting them go altogether soon.

I have a couple of the charming little pieces by the same maker as Lynda's that Debi was able to identify for her. I was too lazy to go get my H&J and look it up.

I second or third the appreciation for Mary's stunning blue lacy. I never managed to acquire any of the colored lacies.

   Good morning everyone. Looks like another rainy day here in Fl.
   Nancy D. My airconditioning saves my life. I found out the other day that breathing in the massive humidity is hard. Love the kitty marshmallows.
   Today is my 2nd Covid injection. My daughter in law Jennifer, is a nurse manager. But... Shan's hospital is so short of nurses she is going to have to work midnights. Nurses are leaving for other hospitals cause they are offering $4,000 sign up bonuses. And very large salaries. They've closed down their burn unit and turned it into a covid unit. Medical staff are frustrated cause 95% of the covid sick patients never got their vaccines. Now staff have to risk their lives caring for them. Some work places are making the vaccine manditory to get hired. Other places you can't go to or get into without your shot card. I like just staying home.
   My SALT OF THE DAY- I think this was probably a vanity piece now missing it's lid. Small and a pretty color. Fits in quite nicely.

   7 deaths last night at Shands. Florida is really not doing well with Covid control. A Pharmisist friend of my daughter in law's went into a store, only to come face to face with a positive covid lady. She had No mask on. He knew she was + cause he'd just filled her covid meds. Alachua County is 11% covid +. Columbia county is 14%. These are the 2 counties my family live in. I think cause the news has backed off reporting information people are just not caring.
   Please my friends, be careful. Protect yourselves. Stay well.

Will find a salt picture when I am on my phone, still having trouble doing it on my computer.... Have a really weird silver I just got to show you, I know what a new concept from me. First though, I have to do my column for Kent. He has been so patient.
Lynda, I have no idea what you are showing this morning.. lol lol Clear on white on white is just too much for my old eyes and used up brain this morning. But I am sure they are Purdy.

   Well, here is my SALT OF THE DAY. O K this is a bit of a bizzar salt. I've seen it listed somewhere. It's a Davidson or a Sowerby. I did one of those "stupid".. oh I don't have to write it down, I'll remember it. Duhhhhh.
   Hope you all have a good day. Take care everyone

Good morning all. What a face on that kitty cat Nancy D. Priceless.
Love your salt Lynda. I have had one or two and once again not sure why I sold them. I am sure when I come to after my current heavy purging, I will wonder why I sold many of them.
I will soon have to make a decision on both of my babies. No more needs to be said more am I able too. Sadness is such a minor word. I
I love this Doulton. Though a very common scene, it is a not so common shape.

   Good morning everyone. Hope you are all doing well. Hunter and I did 5th grade math yesterday. What a challenge for my brain.
   I'm worried about Mary and Albert. They are not doing well. Big time prayers are needed.

Lynda, I so appreciate that you continue to put up a salt a day here. I have a small collection, and I think I've shown everything I have at one time or another, but you have such deep pockets! I love that swirly one. The glass looks fairly new but the holder looks old.

   My SALT OF THE DAY, This is so different. Swirl of color in a holder.
   Debi, I'm glad your foot is better. I saw your doubles. I want both but have no place to put them.

Yes, the foot is all better now. The skin is still thinner in that area and looks darker pink but no problem. I kept an antibiotic cream on it daily and new bandaid. When it looked like it was going to scab over a couple weeks ago I kept putting the cream on it and it never formed a scab. Doesn't look like there will be any scar either.

I have a couple glass doubles on eBay right now and hope to get more listed this week. Seller name is lraitz (LRAITZ).

   Good morning everyone. Hope you are all feeling good. Debi, I imagine your foot finally healed. That was an aggravation, I'm sure. Nancy V, how is the P T going? Nancy D, how is your mouth? All better, eating real food? Jan, are you feeling better? Mary, I know Albert is better. I hope you are too.
   Nancy D, on F B, I'm seeing all kinds of wild animals enjoying the swimming pools of humans. I think the heat is getting to all creatures.
   My SALT OF THE DAY, I've only seen an amber one of these once. Mary had a few she was selling. I was lucky, one of her buyers backed out and I was able to get this one. BUT, if I know Mary, this was one she had saved for herself. She saw how much I wanted one and sold me hers.
   Going to be a big rainy day here. Hope sunshine for the rest of you. Have a good one.

  I think these are called transferware. I keep looking for more like these, but never really finding any the same shape. Jan found some that were round and different. Expencive but I think that's cause they were from a famous maker.

   Good morning everyone. Hope you all have a great Saturday. Thank you Debi. I have just won a couple of her inexpencive
 salts. A square tab bucket and a glass salt in a silver basket. She had a bird on a turtle head that I wanted but lost. I have a set of them. They were made in the 50's, not special except I adore them and wanted to add to the set. The bid went for over $62. That blew me away. Here they are. As you can see, they are not of great quality or value. But, I love them. Next time I bid $ 100.00.
   Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Mary, my thoughts are with you. I really hope your Dr comes up with a solution soon. God Bless you. Love to everybody....that means you too Beverly.

Yeah, me too. I think I'll pass on it. When you consider it's $200 and just a couple weeks ago they were being bunched and sold with 6-10 other salts, what's the point of spending so much on just one? You can't even buy a rather common clear glass individual for under $10 these days, and then they are sold by the tray load for around $50, or about $2 each. That was the price I paid when I first started collecting those clear individuals about 35 years ago and apparently it's still the value of them in the end.

I messaged that seller and asked a question about a salt and also asked if it was part of the Ayers' collection. I like the salt but it clearly has a small chip in the picture they didn't acknowledge. When they answered they said they checked it with loupe and they called it "wear". You don't need a loupe to see it's a small chip. They completely ignored the question about it being from the Ayers' collection.

There is an eBay seller that right now has at least 6 of the Ayers' salts that were not in the Evans auction. So this is either one of the children or someone was able to buy before the Evans auction.

   Hi everyone. Overslept today. Guess I'm still tired from the shot. Not sick anymore so that's good.
   Everybody seems to be getting rain. It's funny, thunder boomers put me asleep. For some reason they are soothing to me.
   Debi, I think when I 1st heard of the Ayres auction, Donna Wolf said, the kids kept some of their collection. It may be a lot of the colored glass. I don't really know.
   SALT OF THE DAY. Just a pretty blue pedestal.

Shades of the derecho, which was 1 year ago. Yesterday during the storm, that big branch came down and rolled my daughter’s LP tank. It got fixed quickly. Meanwhile, lots of us are still cleaning up from last year, with many still in need of major home repair. Hope everyone is safe!
